Sipdown! I found four bags of this while reorganizing my stash of bagged tea, and decided to use them all up. Steeped all four in 16 oz, and immediately poured into my iced-filled water bottle. The strength ended up being perfect, so I may just have to repeat this method to get rid of some of my other Celestial Seasonings teas.

This tasted mostly like hibiscus, but I didn’t find it to be overpowering or unpleasant. There was a spicy aftertaste, but it was bit on the weaker side. I’m not overly impressed by the quality of the rooibos, but it’s perfectly acceptable for a $2 box of bagged tea. Safari Spice, it as nice to know you, but I don’t expect that our paths will be crossing again anytime soon.

I’m a Floridian living in Kansas and currently pursuing a physics Ph.D. by day (…and by night, who am I kidding?) with an immense love for all things tea.

Rating Scheme:

<50 = Undrinkable.
50-59 = Drinkable, but not my cuppa.
60-69 = Decent, but nothing to write home about.
70-79 = Good tea that I drink occasionally. Probably will not restock when it runs out.
80-89 = Very tasty. May or may not restock when it runs out.
90-100 = Delicious. A staple in my collection.
